Sept 19 & 26: Peace hosts Voter Registration and Election Information

Civic engagement calls us, as people of faith, to vigilantly ensure the right to vote in both policy and practice. Action to facilitate access to this right can include voter education and registration.”  ELCA social statement originally posted 2/2020.

The Outreach and Advocacy team, in cooperation with the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy, is sponsoring voter registration opportunities at Peace on September 19 and 26 from noon to 1:00 pm.  Find tables outdoors (weather permitting) where you can check your registration status and register if you are eligible and are not currently registered. Note that any citizen who will be 18 on Nov. 9 is eligible to vote and may register in advance. If you have moved to a new address, you must register again.  Registration closes in Virginia on October 12. Friends and neighbors are welcome!

(Please note that registration in Virginia is not by political party; you will not be asked for your political preference.  Voter registration is completely nonpartisan. Our project is within legal guidelines for voter registration.)
